Montenegro grb-holder Country Housing Project In 2019, Montenegro completed many challenging tasks in the implementation of the RHP. Within the sub-project MNE4, 271 beneficiaries moved into their apartments in Berane, while under MNE6, foundations were laid for the construction of a home for 104 elderly persons and adults with disabilities in Nikšić. Completion of construction of this important facility is expected by the end of 2020. The RHP team also worked diligently to bring MNE7 - “Purchase of 36 apartments in the municipality of Herceg Novi” to its final phase, and we are confident that this project will be completed next year. Additionally, progress was made with respect to other sub-projects, in particular MNE8 - the construction of a minimum of 50 houses. Montenegro is confident that 2020 will mark the successful completion of many sub-projects, and we remain committed to the implementation of the RHP. Budimirka Đukanović

OVERVIEW

Over the past 20 years, Montenegro has provided shelter to displaced persons from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia, as well as to internally displaced persons (IDPs) from Kosovo. While some of the displaced persons and IDPs have already integrated locally, most of them are still in need of durable housing solutions due to their extreme socio-economic vulnerability.

The Montenegrin Government has over the years constructed some 1 300 housing units with the support of international donors; however, this has not been enough to cover the needs. In 2011, the Government of Montenegro adopted the National Strategy for Durable Solutions for Displaced and Internally Displaced Persons, with special emphasis on the Konik area. The Strategy has created a framework for the permanent and sustainable resolution of displacement issues in Montenegro.

In Montenegro, the Regional Housing Programme (RHP) provides durable housing solutions to the most-vulnerable displaced and internally displaced persons through local integration or within institutions of the social welfare system, such as Homes for the Elderly. In total, 681 households (or approximately 2 000 individuals) should benefit from the RHP.
